1968 Baja 1000 Overall Winner

Larry Berquist and Gary Preston riding what looks like a basically stock Honda 350, cleaned house at the 1968 Baja 1000 beating all other two and four wheeled entries. They also broke the record with a time of 20 hours 38 mins from Ensenada to La Paz. The Long Beach Honda 350 rode on trials universals, had a slightly larger 450 tank , fork brace, TT Pipes and a rudimentary skid plate, Koni Shocks and a plush seat. Other than that it looks stock. Incredible.
